a whole lot easier. >>> rush limbaugh once again today going where few dare to go, accusing speaker pelosi of playing the nazi card. >> she called these people na nazis. >> speaker pelosi is not making this up. look at these first person pictures sent to us from chicago. that person's sign says, stop obama's nazi health care cuts and this person put a hitler mustache on the president. high-minded debate intend. here with us, mike stark and phillip klein. phillip, do you want to take this opportunity to condemn limbaugh when he compares president obama to hitler? >> i think there's no excuse for it. those comments were out of line, but i have to laugh at the sort of liberals sort of discovering it's offensive to speak of the president this way. move on.org ran an ad comparing bush to hitler. dick durbin compared u.s. servicemen -- it's absolutely wrong, but the point is is that you know, during -- you could take a picture of someone at a rally and fintd all sorts of extremists. i remember during the bush years, i used to go to antiwar rallies. i got heckled because i'm jewish and supported
, the rhetoric of rush limbaugh. >> the people who are the closest and bear the most striking resemble to the policies of nazis is the democratic party. >> as a republican senator now condemns sarah palin calling her nuts. >> and hillary clinton's sharp words. >> you want me to tell you what my husband thinks? my husband is not the secretary of state, i am. >> call it a case of lost in translation. all that and more this hour on msnbc. wow. big moments there. good afternoon to you. i'm tamron hall live in new york. >> i'm david shuster live in washington. tamron, nothing stirs voter passions quite like a villain. in our big picture this hour, president obama and his health care reform supporters are trying to put the spotlight on what they call the evils of the for-profit health insurance industry. today at a town hall in new hampshire mr. obama painted the industry in the most sinister fashion to date. >> because right now we have a health care system that too often works better for the insurance industry than it does for the american people. i don't believe anyone should be in charge
opinion. they're discrediting themselves. risch lum b ris rush limbaugh has an audience who likes to listen to that kind of -- let me not characterize rush limbaugh, but it's becoming more and more limited audience. i think the vast majority of the american people want something done. they know we're trying to do the right thing, and they certainly don't want this country to be guided by the likes of rush limbaugh and that kind of nonsensical rhetoric. >> congressman, you mentioned your decades of experience in washington. it seems to be your sense by what i'm hearing that you do not believe then that this is a grassroots effort, that you believe this is being orchestrated. who do you think is behind it all? >> i think the industries that have benefitted from the status quo, some of the insurance companies, certainly some of the very conservative groups who don't want change. they're opposed to government involvement. now -- and it's easy for the american people to pick up on that. in fact, i have had people say to me, keep the government off my medicare. well, of course, medicare
limbaugh getting some flap. what he said about house speaker nancy pelosi that's got a lot of people all fired up. >>> and the post office facing big-time money problems. officials say it's time to get creative in order to raise some money. what could happen at your local post office. now that's progres. call or click today. ♪ ♪ i'm cool like that, i'm cool like that ♪ ♪ i'm cool like that [ female announcer ] there's a smarter, cooler way to get your clothes brilliantly clean. and it's a turn for the better. ♪ i'm cool like that, i'm cool like that ♪ [ female announcer ] tide coldwater. it's specially formulated to clean in cold better than the other brand does in warm. ♪ cool like that and by washing in cold, you can save up to $10 on your energy bill with every 100 oz bottle. and that's cool. tide coldwater. get out of the old and into the cold. ♪ i'm cool like that >>> now to the very latest on that deadly wrong-way crash here in new york that claimed eight lives. a time line is emerging about what the long island mother was doing before she plowed into an suv after d
with the moderates, but 75% of the republicans really sided with the rush limbaugh side of the party, and i think not only is this bad for republican prospects in terms of trying to change the demographics, which are increasingly moving against them. this is another issue the republicans had no compelling reason for voting the way they were voting. >> i think there were real reasons. republicans kept asking the question about the wise latina comment because they never got a full answer. if they had gotten a full answer, perhaps that might have changed things. certainly republicans have had problems appealing to certain groups but you're not going to appeal to any group whether it's african-americans, hispanic-americans or anybody else by selling out your principles. voters don't respect that. >> but it was the fact that the republicans seem to harp on such an insignificant thing, the wise latina comment, when sam alito had made similar comments and didn't have much else to do to go after her in the hearing. so they're the ones that elevated race much more so than the democrats did. >> again -- >>
post" putting the facts out. what i'm urging individuals to do, not just listening to rush limbaugh, pull out facts, get nonpartisan groups, talk to them, talk to hops and health care provider, et cetera because for the first time everybody's invested in this. the president's had pharmaceutical company, health care providers, hospitals, community health centers all work on this together to make a difference and that's why i believe, and know that we're going to pass a bill that will take us in the right direction that's going to cover more americans for health care, make sure that people that have preconditions that are not denied for and forcing people in bankruptcy and bring down the cost. >> an interesting month listening to you and your swaernts. >>> >> a family spokesperson says eunice shriv is critically ill. a spokesman for arnold schwarzenegger says the golf governor is there with the family in cape cod. 88-year-old shriver a champion for the disabled about best known for her work to establish the special olympics. >>> the widow of tv pitchman billy mays says she's angry ove
to identify the people with the legislation. >> savannah, we saw rush limbaugh, among others, sean hannity as well, begin in fact to criticize the notion that some democrats would call on other democrats to support ted kennedy's legacy and pass health care reform. do you expect that call will be made more formally for democrats and even some republicans? if so, do you think it will be effective? do you think he will have a gipper like opportunity? i have to ask you to hang on one moment. mark sanford is speaking, lieutenant governor has formally called on him to resign. sanford rejected that yesterday but we're going to hear what he has to say right now. >> i wanted to very briefly offer a couple of comments in light of a letter that we sent, our office sent back to david thomas yesterday. it really fits in this larger category of the response i gave yesterday to andrew bowers letter to my office in which in that letter i basically said two things. i said, one, let's not make decisions based on hyperbole, media accounts. let's make decisions on facts. two, when one looks at facts we have a
chosen political calculation over courage. it's not surprising people like rush limbaugh -- what is surprising is that few in the senate who are conservative are willing to stand up for truth instead of the fringe. >> speaking of lies -- the government involvement is unconstitutional. do you agree? >> i haven't heard the quote. i would not say it's unconstitutional. >> so, she's wrong? >> if that's all there is to quote, i don't agree. if you're talking about who's misleading -- the president is tauging about a deficit -- >> how is he misrepresenting his previous stances, given the current system, he believes that the public option is the way to go and to protect the private health insurance market. what have you heard? >> in 2003, he said i for one believe in a single payer health care system. >> and said that he was starting the system from scratch. >> i don't believe he said that. also, he has said as many liberals have said, that this would lead to a single payer health care system. if people are confused, the president needs to go back and address this. >> sam, you get the l
by rush limbaugh, by newt gingrich, and some members of the judiciary committee. not all republicans but enough accusing her of being racist. they're probably going to hear about it. >> ari, and liz, thank you very much. the politics on this is going to be fascinating. people do tend to remember these votes. >> i think ari hit it on the head. obviously as joe scarborough put it, she may not be your kind of judge but the language that went around this process really was ugly when you have someone saying she's a reverse racist and some of the other awful things far beyond that. they may come back to haunt some of the republicans. we'll have to see. >>> our continuing coverage of the sonia sotomayor nomination continues after the break. we got it all covered on "the big picture" on msnbc. it's the chevy open house. and now, with the cash for clunkers program, a great deal gets even better. let us recycle your older vehicle, and you could qualify for an additional $3500 or $4500 cash back... on top of all other offers.. on a new, more fuel efficient chevy. your chevy dealer has more elig
megaphones out there you have rush limbaugh saying these crazy things like the obama health care symbol looks like a nazi symbol and encouraging further elements of the fringe from believing and stoking crazy rumors. that's a hard thing for any white house to counteract. they've been aggressive about. they are putting out web videos and they have an interactive process in which they ask supporters to let them know about crazy talk that's out there so that they can rebut it. that's not easy. we have a culture as you know 24/7 news through social networks, through cable, through the internet and it's hard for political leaders to try to counter and stay ahead of that. >> there's no control. john harwood, always good to see you, my friend. thank you so much. >>> sarah palin is calling the health care plan evil. she posted her thoughts on her facebook page on friday. she says the america i know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with down syndrome will stand in front of the death panel so bureaucrats can decide based on a subjective judgment of their level of productivity in socie
hannity, rush limbaugh. they don't have the stature they once had. they don't stant stand with anything. they haven't come out with their health care plan. sarah palin is looking to be the republican candidate for president next time around. for many republicans that's a nightmare because she is a loose cannon. so they have a republican party that really is looking for issues, looking for ways of reasserting themselves. a defeat on health care would be a great way of giving the obama administration a black eye. they are not going to be able to do that. again, 51 votes is all the democrats need to get health care or a significant part of health care through the senate this fall. >> secretary rice, i want to bring in jon hillsenrath, my co-host. i don't know if i should call you professor or secretary or professor secretary rice. >> your highness will be fine. >> the job market, isn't this a political impediment for president obama right now? it seems to me he's going to have a challenge in the months ahead making his argument as long as the unemployment rate is in the nine plus percent r

, not specifically ma lishs a that was taken by the rush limbaughs of the world to be an attack on anti-conservative or anybody who opposed high levels of immigration or opposed abortion. of course, that wasn't all was the report said. nevertheless it was sort of red meat for the far right. >> mark, thank you so much for joining us today. >> thank you for having hee. >>> ahead is secretary of state hillary clinton continues her trip in africa she is highlighting a crisis plaguing the democratic of congo. we have that straight ahead with hbo filmmaker lisa jackson. butt room for the internet. with my new netbook from at&t. with its built-in 3g network, it's fast and small, so it goes places other laptops can't. i'm bill kurt, and wherever i go, i've got plenty of room for the internet. and the nation's fastest 3g network. gun it, mick.

as euthanasia that is the most ridiculous accusation that opponents like rush limbaugh of this plan are trying to soak the fire to get people worked up. i represent a huge senior citizen population and, obviously, any health care plan i would be supportive of is going to make sure we are sensitive about people's health care needs all the way through their lives. >> thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >>> is the health care debate getting lost in the chaos? we want to hear from you. as we do every day, we ask you to go to iv r twitter.msnbc.com and you'll see my picture there. click on it and shoot me a tweet. or you can go to twitter.com/carloswatson, another way to find me. we will talk today. is president obama too willing to bargain on health care? we talk wheeling and dealing with congresswoman norton coming up. you're watching msnbc live. i'm carlos watson. >>> the idea that barack obama will kill your grandparents and children is somewhat hyperbolick. well, please i thought so, until i saw this. >> i use this remote control to contact life call. i have fallen and i can't get up! >> s
